Obama at State of the Union

Recently, climate change has been the Voldemort of the Obama administration: the “threat-that-must-not-be-named.”

In January, the president omitted any discussion of climate change from his State of the Union address, since what really does the gravest threat to Americans — and indeed, all homo sapiens — have to do with the state of the union? Then the White House edited climate change from Obama’s Earth Day 2012 proclamation.
